Can You Make a Movie from an Impress Presentation?

Postby warman » Fri Oct 09, 2009 1:48 pm

I searched but did not find any info in the forums or in the help section of Open Office.

I created a presentation and now want to make a movie to upload to youtube. Can I do this with Impress? How?

Does it help: Making a DVD from a presentation (ppt2dvd)?

Thanks to add '[Solved]' at beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.

Thanks for the reply but this didn't work. Apparently there is an option in PPT to make your presentation a movie, that's what I'm looking for, if this functionality is built into impress. If not, I'm not impressed..

It depends on how you defined a movie. Impress can export a presentation as a FLASH movie. This is built in.

Built-in where? .swf extensions are useless outside your own network. They do not travel well but then again we experience that over and over with all oo.org applications. Just read the forums.
YouTube, which is viewed by more people than network television, requires .flv flash format. To take a slideshow to YouTube you need to convert to .ppt and then download a converter. Fifteen minutes later you will discover you need Powerpoint installed on your computer to convert ppt to flv! So you then have to dig out the old cds of MS Office and reload Powerpoint. That is, if they allow you to reload them. What a rigmarole!
Simple Solution: Delete oo.org lock-stock-and-barrel. Tuck your tail firmly between your legs. Crawl back to Microsoft.

This is not something I need to do, so I haven't wasted much time on searching for a solution, but
http://www.boutell.com/newfaq/creating/video.html seems to give methods for doing so.

Any help would be appreciated.
Having completed an Open Office Impress presentation I want to export it as a movie which I've done although not to a great standard. However two things are missing from the movie. First the presentation there are animations which don't work as animations only still photo's. And second on the movie there is no music as there is on the presentation. Is there any way around these two issues?

1. Export each slide to a GIF file
2. Create an animated GIF.

1. Search for a utility which makes a movie of the screen - there are many.
2. Run the presentation and capture the screen or window.

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
